John Webb (Hume Cronyn) is recently widowed and living alone on the farm he and his brother used to share. He rarely sees his daughters, Jacqueline (Joanna Miles) and Grace Ann (Roxanne Hart), and his only company is Grey (James Earl Jones), the farm's longtime overseer. John's solitude is interrupted by his nephews, Carl (Frederic Forrest) and Gus Jr. (Chris Cooper), who have been approached about drilling for oil on the farm. Tensions rise as John clashes with his opportunistic family.
